Some inside IT peeves of mine...

One that really bugs me is with other IT people thinking that just because I'm nearing 60 that I haven't kept my skills updated or even that I'm not capable to doing so.

Another peeve is IT recruiters creating listings for "Rockstar Ninja Programmers". Should you wear a leather jacket and strap on a guitar or sport a shinobi shozoku and a ninjatō when you go to the interview? Other "we're such a cool place to work" cliches ("we have foosball tables and play beer pong!") are also annoying but that one annoys me the most.

Totally agree I think some people forget and dont appreciate that modern languages, frameworks and practices are better because of the people who suffered before them.
